Faré would it be possible/appropriate to take the core of find-system
which does the work of loading the system (opening the file,
interpreting it, etc.), and package it up as a generic function so that
it would be possible for customizers to add :before, :after, and :around
methods?  Or, alternatively, for "in-house" ASDF extensions like
Juanjo's, or a proposed ABCL jar extension, to provide additional
"wrapper" methods that would leave :before, :after, and :around free for
